Hello, all! As of today, we have just one week to go until the start of National/Global Poetry Writing Month!

We hope you’re getting your pencils sharpened, your laptops charged, and all your finest glittery pens prepared for a full month of writing verse. We’ll be back on March 29 with the first of three countdown posts, and on March 31, we’ll also post an (optional) early-bird prompt for those of you located in time zones where April 1 arrives a bit earlier than it does here on the east coast of the United States.

In the meantime, our “Submit Your Site” page remains open and ready to receive any links to websites, blogs, or other internet-places where you’ll be posting work, and if you have any questions for us, you can send them to napowrimonet-AT-gmail-DOT-com.

Finally, as we’ll be featuring poetry-related video resources throughout April, we’ll leave you for the time being with this oldie-but-goodie – Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” as interpreted by The Simpsons. Fair warning – they may have taken some, er, minor liberties with the text.
